Should women at high risk for cancer use oral contraceptive pills?

0

Oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) are the most commonly used reversible method of contraception in the USA, and more than 80% of women aged 15–44 years report having taken them at some time [1]. Most women considering their contraceptive options base their decision to use OCPs on the effectiveness, convenience and tolerability of the method. For women with a family history of hormonally influenced cancers, whether or not they decide to use OCPs is further influenced by the effect of these pills on their risk for cancer.
